VA regulations require attendance records be kept on all eligible persons enrolled in programs not leading to a standard college degree.
Eligible persons will have their VA benefits suspended if they accumulate three or more unexcused absences during any calendar month. Three tardy days count as one absence; two partial days count as one absence.
An eligible person whose benefits are suspended for excessive absences may be reinstated once during a semester upon written permission of the program chairperson or instructor. Additional instances are considered unsatisfactory progress.
VA benefit certification will be terminated if a student is absent 10% or more of the total hours in a given enrollment period (or cumulative absences exceeding 10% of the total number of hours in a program). Students enrolled in short term programs must adhere to current Veteran Administration regulations and Standards of Progress. Students who fail to maintain satisfactory progress are not permitted to continue enrollment in their program and will not be eligible to receive benefits.
You may lose your benefits if you do not attend classes!
